. it was a visual flight rule. so that's been confirmed by sfo. nothing wrong with that commercial pilots do it all the time. in this case, the plane made a steeper descent and essentially, got too low. it cost lift. it didn't have power. the pilot apparently tried to overcorrect, tried to get more air under him. get more lift. so essentially, pointed the nose of the plane up which is exactly what the witnesses say happened. and when he did that, you see he is still over the water. he is trying to get more lift and touchdown. when he did that, the nose went up, the tail went down and scraped along the rock barrier between san francisco bay and the end of runway 28 l. that apparently caused quite a hard hit. then the tail went off the plane and at that point, he lost all control of that airplane. in fact, it is quite fortunate that it was able to come to rest and so many people were able to walk off with very few injuries or no injuries at all. >> absolutely. thank you. if you're just now tuning in, here's what we know at this hour. some definitive number and different inty reports. 307 people on th

us from sfo. it's been a clear sense of communication here throughout the day from mayor lee, from the fire chief at sfo, even the ntsb and the fbi. >> reporter: they're being very careful as to what information they put out there. everyone is awaiting the arrival of the ntsb from washington, d.c. that group expected to arrive in about aphour. they will probably do what they can tonight. most likely wait until daybreak to continue their investigation. officials have been briefing us all day long, trying to tell us what happened here early this morning. it was the kind of briefing that officials haven't had to deliver for more than seven decades. >> there's been a tragic accident for sfo and all of san francisco. >> reporter: this morning, asiana airlines flight 214 from seoul, korea, with 291 passengers and 16 crew members, slammed into the runway at sfo. tearing away the plane's tale. the plane then burst into flames as fire crews arrived on scene. >> my hat goes off to the people who went into the cabin of the plane to do what they could. >> reporter: two people are confirmed dea

runways at sfo. we have re-opened two of the four so we're operating limited arrivals and departures at sfo. >> here is a look at the board here at the airport. you can see earlier live, delays, cancellations, but we're seeing lots of on time. they have gotten two runways up and operational today. so it is improving here. look at the crowds. this is a pretty long line here for security so it's very crowded here, and people have been very patient, waiting for their flights that were delayed, that are now starting to get going. so this is in the international terminal. that's where we're getting our updates and where we're watching the situation. we see people waiting, taking naps, patiently waiting for their flights as the airport gets become on track. so, a long day here at the airport but people have been very patient. they've definitely had sympathy for what happened. we have not seen anyone upset or frustrated or making demanded of airport officials, who everytime they brief us are very grim and very focused as they try to get their information to us very precisely. i asked, where
. we have four runways in sfo. we reopened two of the four runways and we are operating limited a arrivals and departners in sfo. we recommend passengers to check with their airline for the status of their flight before coming out to the airport today. thank you for coming, our next briefing it will be at sen time time 30 in the next location. >> good news there, and of the passengers that were deemed to be unaccounted for. at this point it appears they are all accounted for with the exception of one. and there were 307 people on board of this flight. and 291 passengers and 16 crew. at this point, 306 have been accounted for and two fatalities. and we will bring back port golds who is the director of the national safety board. peter, in term was what happened and caused the flight to go down, there is little information available about that? >> and that is the way it is going to be for a while because until we get the data recorders and until we get a look at how the aircraft and the flight crew were performing, you will not know. the attention should be focused on what an extra

is shocking as the incident itself. i just crash landed at sfo. tail ripped off. everyone seems fine. i'm okay. surreal. witnesses shocked that anyone could survive. >> just pancaked immediately. and then just kept sliding and sliding and sliding. it finally stopped and you could see how the fuselage kept buckling. surprised it didn't come apart all together. and it was unreal. >> reporter: helicopter pictures show the trail of destruction. impact on the stone embankment, one set of plan beilanding gear plane stabilizers, the tip of the tail, debris littering the runway. officials say there was no sign of trouble before the plane crashed. . the weather ideal, a clear day. all traffic using visual flight rules to land. pilots say landing at san francisco international can be tricky. this shows the final approach. the runway starting at the water's edge. two things they're looking at are the engines. asiana airlines saying both were in fine working order, but passengers did say they felt them add power to them just before that impact. also that left engine seems to have disappeared. and the inst
they are prepared for this. especially the hospitals within the 15 mile radius in all directions from sfo. potentially they could have an accident like this. stanford said, i believe, eight trauma teams up within a matter of 20 minutes to be able to take in patients, stanford hospital to your house. it gives you an idea these hospitals are prepared for this type of thing. they can get those trauma teams up in a hurry. there was triage here. you also had people that were injured that didn't realize it. maybe them internal injuries. a couple of doctors were talking about that. about how maybe a few hours set in before they realized they may have bruised or hurt some things inside because of the very quick and sudden landing and the way they came down so hard and bounced by most accounts. you have people that actually felt they were okay, then started feeling not so well and eventually went to the hospital. you had a number of injuries that range from those type of internal injuries, to people that may have hurt their neck, their back, to cuts, bruises, burns, to critical injuries as well. >

wall at the end of the sfo runway and break apart. good morning and welcome to america's news headquarters. >> jamie: we are glad you are with us. there is lots of news, including a press conferences and the national transportation safety board has recovered the black boxes from the boeing 777 as they continue to investigate. they began in the wee hours of the night. they hope to interview the crew today, too, to get more answers. emergency officials releasing audio from a fire department dispatcher. >> you are approaching the north field checkpoint. i have what appears to be a moderate column of smoke coming from a downed plane. make this a red alert please... >> jamie: take a look at this animation of the crash, too. as the plane approaches, it slams into the runway. the tail literally napping off. the plane then veers off the runway, where it catches fire. adam housley is live at the san francisco international airport, where he has been monitoring all the developments. adam, we expect this news conference. what sort of update do you think we will get? >> reporter: well, fi
. >> in fact, more than 180 people were transported to 11 hospitals and the fire department here at sfo, there are three stations here, had no warning. all they were told, there was a hard landing. they had no warning of any distress. so when they arrived on the scene and saw the plane broken up, they had to go into action immediately, but they were not prepared for that. and san francisco airport is running at half capacity. there is some talk they will try to open up one runway -- one major one and one minor one are affected. as of right now, san francisco is running at half capacity. they hope to get one of the runways open today to move this process along. the entire process here probably won't be done for 5 to 6 days as they go through the crash site and remove all the debris here, as this investigation goes forward and the investigation itself, we are told, you won't hear back for potentially 8 to 9 months before we know for sure what happened. but we will get preliminary information from ntsb, later today in a press conference. >> back to you. >> thank you very much. >> fox news
going at sfo even with three of the four runways open. there is still no word on when the four the runway 28 left will re-open because the charred wreckage is still out there. it remains the focus of a major federal investigation. >> gregg: literally, shoulder by shoulder sweeping across the runway, picking up and looking through the evidence there. it will be a long-term before they open up 28l. claudia, thank you from sfo. we are getting a riveting account from one of the passengers on board the asiana plane showing how everyone helped one another. >> it was slow-motion. we could not believe it was happening. you did not know if you would be dead at the end of this or not. the plane stops. the person to my left was injure ed and was unconscious. i unbuckled myself. i was hurting but not too open. i opened the door. the door we managed to get up. this were no slides. i could see the debris but looking further, i told people, we okay, come down, come down. >> gregg: no slides. he said there was no warning by the pilot or crew before the plane stopped at the end of the runway. >
for the past couple hours. i've called sfo, the tsa. i've called literally everyone. i even called sf pd and i've called general hospital in san francisco. nobody has been able to assist me in any way, but coincidentally, a news team has just picked me up and is trying to get me past all those security lines to reunite with my dad as we speak right now. so -- >> so what are you saying, you would like better information? or them to be more reactive? >> they could have contacted maybe the families first before anybody else. especially for, you know, people that they've identified for a crew and passengers. they could have at least, you know, tried to reach out to the families, let them know they're okay or how this procedure is going to work. because so far, i don't know how to get into the airport, i can't get into the airport even if i wanted to. i didn't know where he was located. and thank god his phone is on, because nobody else has been really been in contact with my family. >> yeah. i know that i would be very upset if i had a family member involved. you understand, i'm sure, there's chao
landed at sfo. tail ripped off. most everyone seems fine. i'm okay. surreal." and then, i mean, this is realtime. someone, it is a victim of a crash landing, a devastating crash landing, immediately takes to social media, just sends out the word before it's even on the radar of national media. then as he escapes from the plane, he turns back with his ipad and takes this video. we're going to show you. it's extraordinary stuff. all right, we'll have that video in just a second, but it really does raise questions for all of us about what the role is for traditional media. if citizen journalists can always get there first on the front lines and we are reacting to that, what is the role right now, jackie, of traditional media? >> i think it's a filter, i think it's a vet. because you have people in the moment, they're taking pictures, they're tweeting what's going on, but there is a -- there definitely is a role for gathering all of that and making sure that the story, what is actually happening is happening before their eyes, because you can't necessarily know when you're right th
learned today or at the end of the day yesterday that the guide path technology was not operational at sfo. the folks from sfo seem to suggest that that in no way shape or form should have played a role in what happened. mention about required systems. based on what you heard from the ntsb is there any suggestion that those systems could have helped prevent this if they would have been functional? >> i don't get the impression that the glide slope was the problem. it was a visual approach and pilots are trained to dot that without reference to the glide path. but i am concerned about the power being at idle whether thet auto throttles were engaged because the pilot is supposed to keep hands on the throttles for that reason and he is watching the speed decrease. as the speed decreases he starts to push the throttles forward whether the auto throttles do it or not. >> what does that tell you? >> i don't like to look back and quarterback what a captain has done or the co pilot. i can tell you that that is very unprofessional to not be in a position to control that aircraft regardless of what
and the surviving passengers and any surveillance video that may have captured from the sfo cameras that are everywhere here, i can tell you that. rick. >> there are a lot of surviving passengers for them to talk to. claudia on the ground for us, thank you so much. >> and we go to one of the eyewitnesss that we were talking about. he is joining us from san francisco, tony, what can you tell us as far as your viewpoint and what you saw when the plane came in? >> sure, good evening guys. i was watching aircraft taking off and landing all morning at the san francisco international. i am, you know, here visiting san francisco on business and pleasure and have been here for approximately four days and you know, was trying to time my morning this morning to see a 380 land, i'm an aviation enthusiast and i have never seen it land i wanted to get an opportunity to see that. i was looking out the balcony from the embassy suites and as i do, i see the asiana flight coming in. it looked like a normal orientation for a 777, there was no wobbling, it just seemed to be coming in at a little bit o
to the passengers to brace or any emergency. we also know that sfo is under construction and the instrument landing system or ils as they call it was out of service for this particular runway. the boeing 777 has a redundant system that can be used in this case and the visual flight. they also have the old-school red light, white light landing system that pilots can actually look off into the distance and see whether or not they're too high or too low. clearly the glide path into sto was wrong and that will be where a lot of this centers on. >> and certainly we're getting a lot more eyewitness information from the survivors and rescue crews. what have we learned since last we spoke? >> reporter: the two that were killed railroad found on the runway, we understand. some of the survivors were found in the water, amazingly enough. and when that plane crashed, some of the force of that pushed seats together, trapped individuals in their seats. the plight crew asked emergency responder who arrived at the plane for their knives so they could cut passengers free and get everybody out. >> amazing stories th
had gone to sfo right away were so good at triaging and taking care of those people that by the time they got here, they had a shot. she said had they not gotten that great initial care, two of them, at least two of them who got here, would not have survived. and the number wouldn't be two dead, it might have been four. again, she's praising the first responders, craig. >> stephanie truong from kntv. thank you for that report. >>> the flight crew of asiana jet gave no indication of trouble prior to the crash. i want to bring in daniel rose, aviation attorney, former u.s. military pilot, spent a lot of time with you yesterday. thanks for coming back. the first indications of a problem with flight 214 apparently came from this controltransmission. i want to play it for you. >> 214 emergency vehicles are responding. >> emergency vehicles are responding. >> as a pilot what do you take away from the fact there was no distress call originally from the pilot. that call came from the control tower. >> that was after everything already happened there was no distress call. there was one transm
